Just In: Flood sacks residents from Ondo community

From Kayode Olabanji, Okitipupa

Residents of Igbobini and Ilu Agbo in Ese Ode local government are currently taking refuge at the RCM Primary School, Ilu Agbo following the two days heavy downpour in the area.

The communities were submerged alongside hundreds of animals and pets, while fish pond business owners also count losses.

The Chairman, Ese-Odo Local Government Mrs. Sipasi Aluko who went for on the spot assessment with the use of canoe visited the two communities and appealed to both Ondo State and Federal Governments to urgently come to the aid of residents.

She called on all the concerned authorities and well-meaning Nigerians both within and far away places, enjoined them to render assistance in order to ameliorate the sufferings of the affected residents.

In a related development, the embarkment linking Ese-Odo-Irele on land with Araromi Ayeka Okitipupa has been submerged cutting away the areas from the rest of Ondo State.

The concrete cement embarkment that was constructed during the Dr. Olusegun Agagu administration in Ondo State remains the only route on land linking Ese-Odo and Irele with Okitipupa local Governments.

Many travelers that could not go through the long distance of Ode Irele Olowo road are stranded as some risk the use of canoes to cross over.

A resident, Chief Olafusi Olaluwoye, who spoke with our correspondent, appealed to the Akeredolu-led administration to revisit the embarkment contract and extend the construction of the Araromi Ayeka bridge to the terminal end at Ode Irele.
